Hi I was going to take a picture of the sunset when this bug went buzzing and scared the hell out of me. It’s an inch long, I think (without the wings) and makes a very loud buzzing! Found it in the bushes near the road. This is the only picture I can provide since I got really scared! Thanks!

Dear KM,
This is a Cicada and they are generally regarded as being the loudest insects on earth.  We hope to be able to give you a species or genus identification eventually.
